It's great when the seller has a plan to upload to the MLS. If not I use a program and draw up the home myself.
There are virtual tour companies now like truplace that will send someone out to create a virtual floor plan for you, but I think the cost is around $200.00
Nina Hollander I never had a floor plan made for a residential listing unless one was provided by the builder for a new home. However, in my commercial real estate practice floor plans are a must.
No I have not done it. I provide floor plans if the seller has them from the time they purchsed the house but do not spend money on a professional one.
We never have - although we have considered doing so
Yes, I am totally in agreement with you on this one. I also find it to be a differentiator and it has been a bonus for me versus the competition in some cases. So I do get floorplans done if they do not exist. We have a good local service who does these and the cost is not prohibitive.
Nina, A photgrapher in my city got the Matterport camera which builds a 3D model of the floor plan. We start shooting next week and I will update here what I think. At NAR last year I looked at that and Oculus Rift and then checked our Google Cardboard as a lower cost alternative to OR. Thanks to Active Brad (his old name) for the Google reference.
Hi Nina --there are many services in our area for creating floor plans. I've used them in my marketing for years and include them in the MLS too.
I have never paid for professional floor plans. Prospective home buyers do love them.
Judge: "How did you know where the little girls room was?"
Defendant: "Nina provided a floor plan to the house on the internet."
Judge: "MR/MRS homeowner, were you advised of the hazard and peril a floor plan creates for those who remain in the home and the future buyer?"
Mr/MRS Homeowner: "No."
JUDGE: "Mr/Mrs Homeowner, you need to secure legal council."
I do not.
no, I've never done that.... I do approximate room sizes if the rooms are worthy of it.... and I do aerials to get them interested.... too much info is just enough for them to eliminate the property....
Nina - It is not standard practice for me to provide a floor plan of a home, but if the owner, or builder has one, I will provide it.
Nina Hollander No not normally, unless the seller has one readily available.
